AbstractMedieval Tendai original enlightenment thought (hongaku shiso) had
its formative stage during roughly the twelfth through fourteenth centuries,
a period that precedes and then coincides with the emergence and early
growth of the so-called new Kamakura Buddhism. Scholars have long
assumed some connection between Tendai hongaku ideas and the doc­
trines of the new Buddhist schools, though the nature of that connection
has been disputed. This essay outlines the theories on this subject to date
and raises questions about how the problem has been formulated. It argues
for a more contextualized understanding of hongaku discourse that
locates it within both the specifics of the medieval Tendai tradition and the
broader historical setting.
